Free-Air System and Enclosed Chamber for cool climate Appassimento winemaking

Appassimento is the process of partially drying grapes prior to crushing. It allows for the development of enhanced flavours, concentration of sugars and contributes to more complex aromas in wines made from high quality grapes harvested in cool climate areas with shorter growing seasons. Appassimento grapes can be used to produce premium blended or pure Appassimento wines.
